The flex offense can be a beautiful thing when all that stuff that’s materializing way the hell off the ball produces shots like it did for Boozer in the first quarter of Game Two tonight.  He and Brand have very similar games and it makes me wonder why the Clips can’t come down and get into something like that.  Then I remember – the Clips' big man can’t shoot from beyond 15 and their wings can’t pass the ball.  So much for a fluid motion offense. 

I’m not exonerating Mike Dunleavy.  All I’m saying is that coming up with creative systems is challenging when your roster has serious limitations in its skill sets.  It’s the difference between working easy Sudoku puzzles and evil Sudoku puzzles.  Both are solvable, it’s just that you start a lot closer with one set of attributes than you do with the other.
